How do I authorize UniVerse on Linux?

To authorize UniVerse on Linux:

  • Log out all Eclipse users.
  • Login to the server as root.
  • Stop Eclipse SYSTEM.ADMIN, JBoss and the UV database processes:
service eclipse-jboss stop
service monit stop
service eclipse-system-admin stop
pkill -4 -f phantom
pkill -4 -f uv
service uv.rc stop
  • Update the UV authorization (replace [Install SN#], [Auth Qty] and [Expiration Date] with the numbers from the Rocket|U2 license change confirmation email)
cd /u2/uv
bin/uvregen -s [Install SN#] -u [Auth Qty] -e [Expiration Date]
bin/uvregen -C
  • Note the resulting configuration code for the next step.
  • Open the U2TC authorization website:¬†
  • Fill out the first page with your contact information and select UniVerse 10.2.x and higher and press Continue:
  • Fill out the next page using the information from the Rocket|U2 license change confirmation email and the configuration code from the previous steps, then press Submit. Here’s an example:
  • Note the authorization code given on the confirmation page.
  • On the Eclipse server, authorize UV (replace [authorization code]) :
bin/uvregen -A [authorization code]
  • You may confirm your license count by running the following command:
bin/uvregen -z
  • Start the UV database,¬†Eclipse SYSTEM.ADMIN, and JBoss:
service uv.rc start
service eclipse-system-admin start
service monit start
service eclipse-jboss start
